RAID bus controller: Intel Corporation 82801JIR (ICH10R) SATA RAID Controller
    Subsystem: Super Micro Computer Inc Unknown device 0007

Is any one know which Linux utility I can install on my server to manage above said RAID device from command line.

What kind of management do you expect? ICH10R-based RAID controllers are so called fake- or software-RAID controllers, the OS needs to do all the work. There are numerous writeups, walkthroughs and howtos on how to get software RAID working with dmraid, here is one specifically written for Ubuntu users.

My server have h/w raid. I meant tools like mpt-status. For this RAID mpt-status is not working. My actually need is to know status of my raid device from command line. – Suku Jun 1 '11 at 13:03
Hard to believe that - ICH10R is not a hardware RAID controller. Could you provide the output of dmraid -r and dmraid -s please by posting it to your original question? – the-wabbit Jun 1 '11 at 14:47
Thanks for all your replies. It was a fake raid. I was able to manage it using dmraid – Suku Jun 20 '11 at 8:22
Glad it worked. Feel free to either write a more detailed answer to your own question and mark it as the "correct answer" for the posterity or just mark this one as "correct" to give a hint to future readers. – the-wabbit Jun 20 '11 at 10:52

Try MegaCli - I use it for manage and monitoring purposes. LSI provides Linux-version of this utility and related lib in rpm packages.
